VDC to commence WiMAX trial in July

15 Jun 2006

Vietnam Data Communications (VDC), the wholly owned subsidiary of VNPT, has signed an agreement with Intel to begin a WiMAX trial in the mountainous province of Lao Cai. The trial will begin in early July 2006 and is scheduled to finish in December. VDC received its WiMAX licence in February 2006 and is one of four companies permitted to roll out the technology, although the licences cover fixed WiMAX services only. It is expected that the Ministry of Post and Telematics will issue mobile WiMAX concessions in 2007.
